Professional statement

Shalyn Coleman is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. She specializes in perinatal mental health, anxiety disorders, OCD, attachment-related issues and trauma.

Shalyn’s approach is both compassionate and skills-based. She helps clients to learn to sit with the unknown – eventually growing to tolerate uncertainty in a manner that feels manageable and helps individuals feel more in control.

Additionally, Shalyn is trained in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) treatment, widely considered the most effective and evidence-supported treatment for the treatment of OCD with or without medication. She is also trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), the gold-standard treatment for personality disorders and a skills-based treatment aimed at improving one's own capacity for regulating emotions and tolerating distress.

Shalyn strongly believes that with acceptance, comes change – and she looks forward to helping each client enact positive change in their lives.

Message to clients

Seeking treatment and finding the right provider for you can be a difficult process. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for healing and recovery to take place in. I maintain a compassionate and validating environment in order to develop a shared understanding of what brings my clients into therapy and ways in which we can work together to improve their lives. Building trust is an important part of therapy and I want every individual I see to feel heard and come away from each session with better understanding of themselves and their experiences. I appreciate how challenging the process of change can be and look forward to beginning this process together.
